No posting doesn't mean I haven't been working

Just haven't really finished anything I can show.  And just to prove it - here are snippets of what I've done.
This is a finished piece - for a Christmas gift exchange.


This is a part of my Dresden Plate Challenge that I am currently machine quilting.

I also machine quilted a guild charity quilt.  Didn't take a picture but practiced my feathers.  It had been a while since I had sat at a machine so this was a great warm up to the projects I have pinned and ready to go.  
I am also going to be doing Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt again this year called Celtic Solstice.  She used Orange, Green, Blue and Yellow - but I decided to make mine with Halloween colors - still using the orange and green but using purple and black instead of blue and yellow.  And white for the background.   
And for Halloween we don't dress in costume at work but I did wear all my Halloween fun stuff - spider earrings and ring, and I put colored hair pieces in my hair and wear my Halloween sparkle shirt and wearing my denim jacket that I zig zagged in orange around the edges and embroidered a Halloween motif on the back and wearing a great pin my sister made on the jacket.  I'm even wearing some witch socks.
I have also started my next Loose Threads challenge.  The quote or Haiku is:

The dragonfly
has dyed his body

Thanks for looking.

Haha! I am in the same boat. My fingers are sore from embroidering, but a person can only go so fast on that.

Your Halloween fabrics rock!
